Very good with minor imperfections. 70+ years old.

To note: the jersey side underarm is a bit muddled and discolored in the way that jersey fabric gets -- see photo. Should not be noticed once it's on someone and tucked under your arm.

A small section where the jersey peplum meets waist seam was sewn by a former owner. Hides under a belt, if you wear one. See photo.

Two teeny-tiny cuts (?) at the rear hem -- see photo. A couple pinholes up by the shoulder pad on the jersey side.
